Good Times 



Throughout our four years at Lowell High, 
we have experienced many events. Our 
high school career began as we got to know 
the school. In our sophomore year, we cel- 
ebrated our first semi-formal dance, the 
Sophomore Social. The Harvest, our junior

Having the school to 

ourself that first day 

would be the only time 

we were not confused. 

We started the day at 

8:30 and were dismissed 

at 2:30. A few of us had 

classes in the Mogan 

Center while many of us 

dealt with the noise of 

construction in the old 

building.

Intimidating seniors, identi- 
cal hallways, new faces and 
a crowded tunnel were some 
of the many obstacles we 
freshman faced on our way 
to becoming sophomores. 
This was a great time for the 
majority and for the minority 
a disaster. Some were stuck 
in clusters and lunches with 
no friends. 

Others could not understand 
the layout of the school and 
got lost repeatedly. For most 
of us, however, freshman 



IVAI I 

year was a time to get to 
know new people and our- 
selves. The work was not 
hard and the teachers un- 
derstanding. 

One problem that everyone 
agreed on was the annoy- 
ance presented by the con- 
struction in the Old Build- 
ing. The drilling was con- 
stant and periodically set off 
the fire alarm, once during 
quarterly exams. All in all it 
was an interesting and ex- 
citing year.

Everyone wanted to look 
great! They prepared ev- 
erything before the 
dance; the perfect dress, 
the up-do's, nails freshly 
painted, WOW! Although 
it wasn 't the prom, it sure 
looked like it. The party 
was just the beginning. 

Dates for the evening 
were no BIG deal. Some 
people didn't even think 
about bringing dates. 
They just wanted to have 
fun with friends. Many 
succeeded in having a 
blast and yet many were 
stuck with someone they 
didn 'teven want to dance 
with. Hopefully you were 
happy with your choice. 




A crowded dance floor, 
and a lot of sweat; so 
many students, so little 
room. The food was a bit 
less than to be desired. A 
small buffet and no where 
to sit and eat. A small 
room and even less 
chairs. Tables were used 
only to leave your cam- 
era, jacket, and flowers. 

In the end, we all fit; all 
400 of us. We squeezed, 
sweat, danced and 
sparkled as we cel- 
ebrated the Sophomore 
Social at Germano's Ban- 
quet Hall in Tewksbury. 

Next stop, the Harvest!

Homecoming Activities were kicked off Monday, October 
4, with voting in the cafeteria. After two days, all ballots 
had to be thrown out because someone stuffed the ballot 
box. Ms G coordinated the voting efforts and was not 
pleased with the negative activities that surrounded the 
voting. 

A dance was held Wednesday night, sponsored by the 
Cheerleaders, as over 300 students crowded the cafeteria 
dance floor. After the dance, the traditional toilet paper 
festivities of the senior football players' houses com- 
menced. However, things got a bit out of hand when 
people began getting egged. What a messy sight. 

The presentation of Mr Football at half-time featured star 
Running Back Raunny Rosario, who led the votes among 
his teammates. Only football players vote for one senior 
on the team to be named Mr Football. 

The crowning moment, the 1 999 Queen, Stephanie Zgonis 
was presented with the crown, flowers and sash!

forl tUNCH 



Lunch was a very big part of a student's daily activities. Lunch 
gave us time away from the everyday hardships that plagued us 
during our high school career. Most of us used the 25 minutes 
to relax, hang out with friends and catch up on the latest gossip. 
Others used it to do some last minute homework or to cram for 
an upcoming test. Even though lunch always seemed way too 
short, it gave us an important pause during an otherwise hectic 
day. 

There are many daring individuals who decide to take a risk 
and try the "Special of the Day. " Most students who tried the 
school lunch were genuinely surprised when it turned out to be 
halfway decent. The condiment stand was a circus in itself. Set 
up with squirting ketchup, self-serve onions, and the pasty 
mayonnaise bowls, it was enough to scare away even the 
hungriest teenager. But the food and the condiments were key, 
because no matter what period you had lunch you would always 
find yourself hungry. 

So if you find yourself, years from now, hungry at 10:20 
a.m. or starving by 12:48 p.m., try and remember that if you were 
still in high school you would no longer be hungry. The memories 
are sure to come oozing back!

dance floor was smaller than the stage 
in the school auditorium, not much 
room for over 300 revelers. 



Getting taller by the minute, Suhaii 
Pantojas stands high above the crowd 
to get a look at friends on the dance 
floor. 




Looking suave Nury, Lucia Gwilly, 
Kema Jaina, Diana and Elizabeth

Giving group hugs, Beth Campbell 
throws her arms around her friends 
Kristen Councilman and Jessica 
Desrosiers to show just how much 
she cares about them. 




Kelly Garvey and Chris get romantic 
after a slow song on the dance floor. 
Heat consumed most dancers, requir- 
ing them to seek refuge at their table 
for water and fruit punch. 



Delivering gifts of coal, Santa (aka Mr 
DeProfio) stopped by to see Sam Sok, 
Koy Chang. 





Returning to their table, Jen Garland,

Senior 



Celebrities 



"I always knew that looking back on my tears 
would someday make me laugh, but I never 
knew that looking back on my laughs would 
make me cry. . ." Being a senior required us 
to take on new responsiblities from filling out 
college applications to turning work in on 
time. Having senior pictures taken was one 
of the few things many of us looked forward 
to. Remembering when our appointment 
was proved to be a real challenge. Hopefully 
you liked the way you looked because it is 
now published for all to see in 650 books.

"Shall we dance?" asked senior Raunny Rosario of 
his friend Kal Demenwu. Surrounded on the dance 
floor, the two twisted the night fantastic. Willie Colon 
is just one of the many faces in the crowd of seniors 
waiting for the gym photo to be taken. "I must be in the 
front row!" exclaims Steve Allen, Mike Borges and 
Bob Grenier as they wait for everyone else to fill in the 
bleachers. Fixing you hair, checking your teeth and 
waiting patiently were just some of the things seniors 
did to keep occupied between pictures. Hanging out 
with friends, Tisha, Sara, Val, & Chris take a minute to 
talk and chill. Waiting to pile into the bleachers, Elvis, 
Francisco, Johanny, Braulio, and Jose get caught up 
on the days' events.

Ms. Sullivan has all the

worked hard to meet every 

deadline on time. 




tye<vd<H*4r-A book that contains pictures and memories of high 
school from the past four years so that students can look back 
and smile upon what had happened during that time of their 
lives. That is the hope the yearbook staff had in mind when they 
put the book together. The staff worked diligently through the 
Mods 12/13 & 14/15 Yearbook Journalism classes and tried to 
make the best book possible. With Ms. LaBranche-Sullivan at 
the helm, the students in class quickly learned the meaning of 
work. Between brainstorming, writing captions, creating 
headlines, writing stories, and selecting pictures, the staff found 
some time to laugh during all the confusion. They had to learn 
PageMaker & Yeartech as well as the writing skills necessary j 
to complete all facets of production. With an interesting balance 
of deadline duties and computer confusion the talented staff 
completed the book; hopefully to your satisfaction! Step*?/

The staff worked hard to create the pages that would 
carry a sense of magic into the 21st century and give 
the book a life all its own. Through laughter, stress, 
good times, aggravating times, and even a couple of 
moody days, the book grew into its own, coming to

PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE OBJECTION YOUR HONOR 

Sifting through the case materials, the Mock Trial team Senior Rob Pitkin approaches the stand to question the 
practices for an upcoming competition. The team met witness in the trial. Held on March 3, students got their first

What exactly is Mock Trial, you ask? You are not 
alone. It is probably one of the most frequently 
asked questions about the club. Mock Trial is a 
growing activity in which students of all grades 
take on the roles of lawyers & witnesses to act 
out a court case. Advised by teacher Roxane 
Howe and Attorney's Frank & Patty Talty, students 
prepare for their day in court. Not only does Mock 
Trial teach students the basics of law, it also 
teaches the values of teamwork, communication, 
public speaking, and essential problem solving 
skills. A case is distributed yearly by the 
Massachusetts Bar Institute to schools throughout 



Massachusetts. Each team competes against 
three different schools in their area. Each trial 
varies on the side that presents the case, either 
the defense or the plaintiff side must perform at 
the trial. A total of three trials are held and judged 
by judges or lawyers. The LHS team competed 
against the Middlesex Academy Charter School 
& Central Catholic at Lawrence District Court; 
and Andover High School at Essex County 
Superior Court. They won 1 of the 3 trials, but all 
three trial were scored close, and the members 
performed their roles to perfection.

Playing on a sport team is a very important 

part of many students' lives. All those who 

participated in a sport were winners, even if 

their teams record didn't show it. Every 

person playing on a team learned how to 

juggle their time, make a commitment, and 

be responsible. Because of this some be- fenoctcc&l 

came better people. By playing a sport, you fenefeanectt&e 

meet new people, learn lifelong lessons and tea*ypt,fy>lace 

share great memories with others. Sports fycc^ofeft0*te*t&l>

It's Not the

Piled up in mid-field the football team gets 
stopped by Chelmsford during the Home- 
coming Game. The team had high hopes of 
making some noise in the MVC, but tough 
early losses to Nashua & North Middlesex 
proved too much for the Red Raiders to come 
back from. Keeping an eye her opponent, 
senior Bethany Sykes worked hard to im- 
prove the Field Hockey team's record for 
their second complete season at the varsity 
level. Leading the soccer team to the state 
tournament for the second straight year, cap- 
tain Craig Lamy beats the Billerica defender 
to the ball.

New Additions Prove Helpful 

1999 was yet another successful season for the boys cross 
country team. The year started out as a success with a big win 
at the Rotary International Meet at Devens. The team was also 
third at the Bay State Invitational and won the League Cham- 
pionship meet for the 4th time in five years. The highlight of the 
season was a ninth place finish at the All-State Meet, the best 
finish in several years. 

The regular season ended with a 7 - 2 Record. The losses 
included an upset by Lawrence and a close loss to Chelmsford 
in the final meet of the season. 

The team was led by sophomores Chris Gonsalves and Pat 
Morasse. Newcomers Randy Brodeur and Andrew "Shadow" 
Downey made a large contribution. The Ostrich--Joe Sargent, 
was also consistent factor to the team successes. 




SHOWING HIS SKILLS 

Running to the finish, Randy Brodeur 
completes his first season on cross 
country. He was named to the MVC 
All-Star team, a credit for his work for 
being a first-time runner.

was named the High Five Athlete of 
the Week for November 19. 



IT'S CRUNCH TIME! 

The offensive line gets ready for battle 
during the annual homecoming game. 
It proved to be a tough battle for the 
Red Raiders as they dropped the game 
to Chelmsford, 35-6. 



GOING NO WHERE FAST 

A mob of Chelmsford defenders stops 
the offense from gaining any yards on 
the play. Beginning the season 0-5, 
was discouraging but the Raiders didn't 
give up.

With such a young team, Lowell 
set its' sights on playing hard and 
playing well. Beating more expe- 
rienced teams at the start of the 
season gave the team momen- 
tum to continue its' successes. 
Although they experienced tough 
losses, they were well fought 
battles versus worthy opponents. 

A major highlight was beating 
Somerville in the First Round of 
the State Tournament in 5 hard 
fought games. Lowell's hopes 
turned to fear as they were 
matched to play Andover, a Divi- 
sion 1 powerhouse, in Round Two. 



Falling short to Andover for the 
third time this season, the team 
ended its tourney play with many 
exciting memories. 

Leading the team with 181 as- 
sists, Meghan Keefe received the 
FLHS Most Improved Player 
A ward. While Captain Ashley Cote 
continued her success on the floor 
with 88 digs earning her FLHS 
MVP status. Ashley also was 
name to the MVC All Conference 
team and joined her teammates 
Jen Vitorino and Christie Ouk as 
MVC All Stars. 




THE FUTURE 

Working to earn varsity status, the JV 
team worked hard under the direction 
of Coach Lorinda Collucci. Their over- 
all team record was 17-3. 



GAINING A POINT 

Bumping the ball Jen Vitorino makes a 
great play while keeping the ball within 
the lines.

Fifty-five crew members 
worked hard this fall to pre- 
pare for competitions. With 
such a large number of par- 
ticipants, practices were split 
between the days. Boats were 
borrowed from UMass Lowell 
in order to get 3 boats on the 
water. 

Under the direction of 
Head Coach Bill McGowan 
both boys and girls crew 
teams competetion just two 
races. At the Textile River 
Regatta Both Men's & 
Women's Junior 8 finished 
10 of 15. At the NH Champi- 
onship Regatta just two male, 
two female boats were en- 
tered.

Tournament Bound for Second Year Straight 



VKo&e, t6e Pom, 



Lowell High School has been 
known as a competitive athletic 
school for many years. As the 
years pass and teams change 
many things have been tough to 
accomplish. Playing in the 
toughest league in the state, the 
team has showed its' 
weaknesses, but in more 
instances they have shown their 
strong points. 

They faced difficult changes, 
such as finding players to fill the 
empty spots occupied by strong 
players. Finding one thing which 
would bring them together to win 
games, "teamwork," proved to be 



and inescapable barrier. 

Making the state tournament 
for the second straight year was a 
major accomplishment, especially 
since 7 of the 10 MVC teams also 
qualified. LHS basketball always 
strived to put 100% into each 
game. 

By the end of the season, 
teamwork at each and every game 
was necessary in order to pick up 
the "W." 

Lowell beat St. John's Prep in 
a close game during the first round 
of tournament action, but was up- 
ended by Cambridge Rindge & 
Latin to end their season. 




GETTING IT TOGETHER 

Coach Scottie Stapleton gives the 
team some strong words to take control 
of the game during a time-out. 



TAKING IT STRONG 

Senior Bobby Michalczyk drives strong 
to the basket blowing by the defender.

SPOTTING UP

Otero sets up just below the three

All Star. 



EXCUSE ME 

Moving through the tough defenders, 
forward Chris Chiurri clears his path to 
the basket for an easy two. Chris was 
received the FLHS Coaches Award. 




PUTTING IT UP 

Juniorguard William Pena rises above 
the defenders concentrating on making 
the high-rising lay up. 



SHOWING TRUE COLORS 

Seniors Ryan Hogan, Chris Chiurri, 
Bobby Michalczyk, Julio Otero, Billy

relax and have a little fun before game 
time.

What is a cluster? This question was quickly 

answered as freshman. Students were 

grouped together in English, History, Math 

and Science. We were only free from our 

binding clusters during phys ed, foreign 

language or other electives. Because of 

construction, about 100 students had 

classes in the Mogan Center. Sophomore 

year rolled around and we were the guinea event aCcM^ OWZty

Assisting in the molding of our academic and social 
development, English teacher Paul Georges is just 
one of over 300 faculty members that we may have 
encountered throughout our four years. "The Lunch 
Ladies," as we liked to call them, looked forward to 
seeing our smiling faces in the lunch line. A new hot 
I spot during lunch was the 1826 School Store. It was 
manned by students during the day including Sophat 
Phok. As an Office Intern in A House, Danielle Sullivan 
turns to ask Ms. French a question about some 
paperwork. The gymnasium was just one place stu- 
dents worked on their social development. Katrina 
Freeman swats the volleyball over the net during her 
phys ed class. "What a long way down," Willie Colon 
thinks as he and Melinda Edwards take a look at the 
new tunnel from the third floor of the new building. 
With renovations complete, the building has changed 
it's appearance in just four short years.

With over 3,500 students and nearly 300 faculty & 
staff, Headmaster William Samaras has provided an 
environment conducive for learning. With major 
renovations happening throughout our four years at 
LHS, Headmaster Samaras faced new challenges 
and even more changes in the population, academic 
requirements and a very active student body. 
Running a school of this size requires assistance; Mr. 
Samaras works with several key people throughout 
the building including Dr. David Moorehouse, Master 




Dear Class of 2000, 

You are members of the first class of the new 
millennium. You have received very much, and you 
will be expected to give much in return. You have 
mastered all of the tools necessary to become 
successful leaders. Your motivation to take on a 
leadership role and further transform our society in a 
positive manner remains to be proven. Your family, 
friends, city and country need your powerful presence 
to ensure that tomorrow's students will have a choice 
to grow up in a world that recognizes and appreciates 
your knowledge, your integrity and your values. The 
very future of our country, our city and our schools will 
depend on your utilizing the fine education that you 
received at Lowell High School. Please prepare 
yourselves to accept the responsibility of leadership 
in the next decade. 
Congratulations,

TUNNEL VISION 

Moving from one building to the other 
became easier for Chris Bowen and 
Ryan Hogan. A new tunnel was built in 
1 998 to make it easier for students to 
move between classes. Now two tun- 
nels get you from the Old to New 
Buildings. 



DO YOU REMEMBER 

Researching is easy as studnets are 
able to access a computer in the Li- 
brary housed on the 5th floor of the 
New Building. In 1996, renovations 
moved the library from the first floor of 
the Old Building to its new location. 




LEARNING BY OSMOSIS 

Leading an upside down study group, 
Dan Hickey sits while his fellow 
classmates, Page Sadlier, Mike 
Nugent, and Chrissy Gower read 
aloud. Apparently Mike likes his new 
hard cover hat. 



WHERE IS THE ART ROOM 

Located deep in the heart of the Old 
Building Ground Floor, Mo Molai evalu- 
ates a classmates work. Art classes 
were hidden away, but were one of the 
most popular course selections.

Six floors, two elevators, hundreds of stairs, two buildings, 
dozens of entrances, all leading you to the right place 




STAIRWAY TO WHERE 

Looking around the school, Wesley 
Flores finds the only way to get around 
is climbing stairs. Did you know you 
must climb 52 stairs to get from the 
Cafeteria Canal Side to the Sixth Floor? 
What a workout first thing in the morn- 
ing for D House students! 



1826 SCHOOL STORE 

With a wide variety of items available, 
school store employees Ivy Alvarez & 
Shamela count the inventory. Items at 
the store included school supplies, 
clothing, cards, balloons, and the most 
popular-candy!

WEARING IT WITH PRIDE 

Showing up for class in style, 

ROTC students donned uniforms 

every Thursday. 



A LONG WALK 

Moving through 

the building, 

seniors have a 

chance to 

discuss different 

things. "Do you 

think the test 

was hard... are 

you going to 

practice after 

school... can I 

have a ride to 

work... what's up 

for the 

weekend?" 




COMPUTED OUT 

Tired after a hectic night and 
busy day, students find even 
the most unusual ways to relax 
during a break in the daily grind. 



NOTING THE PROBLEM 

Meeting with friends to discuss 
homework helps stimulate the

Starting in the spring of 1999, students were able to 
enjoy the privileges of having a television studio within the 
building. In the studio, students take part in the high-tech 
world of television production. The studio is equipped with 
the latest technology, such as video cameras, control 
master boards, computer programs, and also a studio set 
where students make the magic happen. 



George D. Kouloheras 




The Library Media Center was renonvated in 1997. 
Instead of the traditional card catalogs, students now use 
high tech equipment with extensive search engines.The 
Library Media Center is helpful for finding the latest, most 
up-to-date information. Students learn skills like using the 
Internet and basic fundamentals of typing. With comput- 
ers, students can access information from sources such as 
the Electronic Library, SIRS Researcher, and Compton's 
Encyclopedia.

ACTION 







77?e Red Raider Baseball Team began its 
season under the direction of 23 year Head 
Coach George Cunha. Coach Cunha 
continued his 300 plus game victories. Led 
by the strong arm of senior Billy Lynch, 
Lowell visited MVC area parks to take home 
two key victories. Away at Chelmsford, the 
team fought off the Lions in the bottom of the 
seventh to clinch the 3 - 2 victory. At mid- 
season, Lynch took the mound again versus 
the Raiders of Central Catholic. Defending 
the bases, extra innings gave Lowell the 5 - 
2 advantage in another surprising upset. 
Working hard for the Raiders at shortstop, 
Bryan B rune lie made his presence felt at the 
plate against Central slamming a double to 
right centerfield. Left fielder Jimmy Mailea 



gave his all throughout the season, making 
leaping catches at the wall, saving runs for 
LHS. Lowell qualified for post-season play 
winning their tenth game behind undefeated 
pitcher Billy Lynch (6-0) versus Haverhill. 
Continuing their winning ways, the Raiders 
beat visiting Division 2 Champs Tewksbury 
late in the season. Mike Nugent helped his 
own cause with 3 homers in one game, a feat 
not ever seen in Red Raider history. Lowell 
ended regular season play with a convincing 
non-league win over Invitational Tournament 
host Lawrence. Lowell met the Mustangs of 
Medford in the opening Divsion 1 North 
Quarterfinals, Lynch 's winning ways came 
to an end as Lowell succumbed 3-2 to send 
the boys home for the summer.

Final Reason to Dance 



With over 100 faculty, 
parents & school 
administrators standing by, 
senior students & their dates 
entered the front stairwell of 
the Lowell Memorial 
Auditorium on the slightly 
breezy Friday evening. 
Arriving in style, several 
prom goers exited all types 
of makes & models of fancy 
white or black limousines. 
One large group even 
arrived on a coach bus. 
Students proceeded 
through the Hall of Flags to 
the check-in desk, greeted 
by Mrs. Howe & Mr. 
Bolianties. At this time, 
seniors entered their name 
into the drawing for Prom 
King & Queen. 



Proceeding through the 
mezzanine section, dancers 
were invited onto the floor 
area where over 60 tables 
surrounded the dance floor. 
Decorated with Red, Black, 
& Silver balloons, tables 
were plenty including 
several on the stage; those 
lucky few had the best view 
all night. DJ Joey Dion kept 
the beat going with various 
tunes & inside fireworks. 
Edward McCain's "Could 
Not Ask for More" was 
played by mid-evening. 
Couple & Buddie shots were 
captured by McLean 
Studios, while Blanco's 
Catering provided a 



bountiful array of hors 
d'oeuvres & the main 
course. 

Around 10:30 p.m., Mrs. 
Fineman made her way to 
the stage for the highlight of 
the evening. Chosen from 
about 150 entries, Kevin 
Dion was crowned Prom 
King. Finding his Queen 
took three tries when finally 
Chhun Moeuy emerged 
from the crowd. Many 
attendees kept the party 
going until the final song 
was played at 11:59 p.m. 
What a night to remember,
